"So Long and Thanks for all the Fish" by Sophia Van Der Meijden, Paper Collage
9 x 15
After Sophia van der Meijden (1987) temporarily ended up in a wheelchair early 2018 due to an accident, she was no longer able to leave the house alone. During a lengthy convalescence, she made the decision to take up her old love again – creating art. The work she made did not go unnoticed. Her popularity grew after she posted the work online. Galleries, companies and art lovers were interested. Now she exhibits her work in galleries in Rotterdam and works together with international fashion companies. In the collages she makes, Sophia aims to combine humor and aesthetics. The combination of pictures creates whole new alien worlds and surrealistic compositions.
